IPsurvey is an online tool that you can use to monitor a technical field determined by you. Published patents and utility models from the monitored technical field, is stored in a IPsurvey database. IPsurvey is only accessible for you and those you authorize but users can by e-mail share references to external users to. Using the comment and/or tagging feature on individual references knowledge sharing is made easy. You can also search within the database for specific references using the search function.
The surveillance is performed using the search tool, we normally use in the Danish Patent and Trademark Office, for example, in the database Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI). The found references are presented in IPsurvey with bibliographic information, abstracts and drawings retrieved in the European Patent Office (EPO) Open Source database (OPS). Each reference either link to Espacenet or PVSonline (for the Danish references). By following the link to Espacenet the published documents and status information can be seen.
